sun-sweet prunes

October 26, 2012

There are a few things that count as life’s true luxuries in this one life I know. And somehow, in the midst of traveling and future-wondering stresses, this day has managed to catch me off guard with a surpassing sense of luxury.
Was it the warm air, and sun, that seeped into my already cold-weary cells? Was it the conversation that provided a glimmer of excitement for the future possibilities? Was it the act of slipping pajama footies onto sweet little feet? Was it sharing an afternoon at the pool with several of those sweet little feet-pairs? Was it the expression on her face as she held splayed fingers up from the pool, in front of her face, with a look of confusion when I asked if she had “prune skin”? Was it goodnight kisses and bedtime prayers.
